The library is named after one of our pioneers, E. W. Petersen, who in 1948, helped to found the institution that has become Bugema University.

The library is central to academic life at the university.  It provides resources for use in the instructional, professional and curriculum programs of the fac¬ulty, students and other users to achieve intellectual growth and academic excellence through scholarship, research and quality Christian education.

The university library supports the academic program by maintaining impor¬tant facilities and valuable collections such as internet access, printed mate¬rials, CD-ROMs, theses, e-journals and e-books, on line catalog access, listening and viewing room for multi-media equipment. When using any library facilities, please do not hesitate to approach any member of the library administration or staff for assistance.
